MONDAY THE BOURNE LEGACY
9PM, SCT ★★
No Matt Damon? Not really a Bourne movie then. Such is the fate met by this unsuccessful spin-off from the hit spy-thriller franchise. Watching this disjointed, suspense-free affair go through its motions is like showing up for a major stage play only to be told the understudy will be filling in for the big star. Playing a long-lost fugitive stablemate of Jason Bourne, Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) does not deploy that emphatic look-at-me factor needed to quell any rightful doubts one might have about the movie. The Bourne Legacy in no way honours the Bourne legacy. It is merely an exercise in brand maintenance until Matt Damon feels like climbing down off his wallet and is ready to be Bourne again. Co-stars Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton.
